United Healthcare - UnitedHealthOne Individual and Family plans
United Healthcare offers Short Term Medical (STM) plans in 31 states. The length of the available coverage term varies by state. Below you will find the states where United Healthcare plans are available and the policy term duration's for their plans in each state.
The United Healthcare STM plan provide an excellent base of protection. However, Short term medical (STM) plans do not cover all the services/treatments mandated under Obamacare (e.g. maternity, preventive care, outpatient mental health services and prescription drugs) and they do not cover any pre-existing conditions.
Therefore, to enhance your overall coverage, United Healthcare offers several supplemental benefits (see further down this page). You can also add any or all the following supplemental benefits available on our US Supplemental Coverage page to make your overall plan as comprehensive as you want:
- Accident Protection Plans
- Critical Illness Plans
- Cancer Treatment Plans
- First Day Hospital/ICU Stay Protection
- 100% Preventive Care (Per ACA/Obamacare guidelines)
- Prescription Drug coverage
- Dental and Vision Plans
- Life Insurance
